Agree about checking truck stops for their stock- they'll be longer and will have (hopefully) a higher quality connector and better conductor. I'll also chime in about cables- if you can, check the guage of the individual wires within the cable at the connector- the larger the diameter of the individual wire- the more resistance in the bundle. You could have a 4ga wire that doesn't perform that much better than a really good set with a smaller cable. If you see that the ends have been "tinned" and the crimp is really good- they should perform well. And remember oxidation is not your friend- keep em dry and in a case if possible. Some people even spray some sort of copper polish protectant on them.
